Posted by on Feb 29, 2012 in Industry Events | No Comments

From our friends at the NW Animation Festival:

There’s just one month left to submit your film for the Northwest Animation Festival! The final deadline is April 1. Screenings will be held on May 18-19 at the historic Hollywood Theatre in Portland Oregon. See website for details: www.nwanimationfest.com/2012-submit


In our first year, we screened 78 films from 9 countries, including two from Oscar nominees. We aim to make our second year even grander.

We showcase the breadth of the animation world. All methods are represented: hand-drawn, computer-generated, stop-motion, pixelation, and experimental hybrids. All styles are welcome: hilarious, heart-warming, dark, cerebral, or abstract. We make a point of showing films both from masters and remarkable amateurs.

This is a festival created by animators, for animators, and all lovers of animation. We bring together and inspire a community of artists, and expand audiences’ understanding of what can be done with the art form.


  • Place of origin: Films may come from anywhere in the world.
